The Fab Products Engineering team worked on the project from start to finish. The team provided the design work and materials which resulted in 98 hours spent constructing the deck.
Their volunteer work has resulted in a $3000 ALCOA Foundation ACTION grant for Warrick County 4-H. We sincerely appreciate this high level of support from ALCOA Warrick Operations.

1. Prepare a Kit: Your kit should contain enough items for those in your care. The kit should include water, food that is non-perishable, first aid, prescriptions, flashlight, and a battery operated radio. You can visit Ready.gov for a kit checklist.
2. Make a Plan: Agree on an emergency plan with those in your care. You may also want to work with neighbors to build a neighborhood/community plan. Sample plans can be found at Ready.gov.
3. Be Informed: Free information is available to you at your local fire departments, local emergency management agency and your county Extension office. Also, the Extension Disaster Education Network is a great source for emergency preparedness.

Part of practicing good animal welfare is looking out for the welfare of all animals. If you visit the Warrick County 4-H fair this week, you will see countless examples of 4-H members practicing animal welfare.
With the high temperatures this week, 4-H members are taking precautions against the heat by ensuring their animals are staying cool and comfortable. Just as families take care of the elderly who might become sick during heat waves, 4-H members offer the best care they can for their animals. The responsibility 4-H members undertake with their animals allows them to grow into caring and responsible adults.

Step 1: Our food engineers mixed vanilla (or chocolate) soy milk with 1 Tbs of sugar.
Step 2: Our food engineers put their milk mixture into ice. (the ice included a sprinkle of ice cream salt)
Step 3: Shake until milk mixture thickens and enjoy a tasty treat.
This was a great way to help children understand the benefits of soy, especially to those who cannot have lactose in their diets.
